Dave’s Story

Hi my name is David and I’m from south London. I’m the eldest of four children. I came from a good home but always felt as if something was missing in my life. I began experimenting with drugs at the age of 15. When I was 17 I took an LSD tablet which blew my mind. This led to a serious intravenous heroin and crack addiction. I ended up becoming a drug dealer to fund my habit.

One by one my family started to become Christians but I turned my back on them. My drug addiction brought me to my knees and I eventually found Jesus and cleaned up my life. However I still had chronic alcohol problems. I looked everywhere for help and eventually found Teen Challenge London where I received total freedom from my addiction in Christ. I am now serving in Teen Challenge as the Outreach Director and am about to be married to a wonderful Christian woman. Praise the Lord!
